Marlborough – New Zealand’s major wine producing region – has a diverse landscape of extensive coastline, sheltered waters and forests to frame endless outdoor pursuits.

Basking in year-round sunshine at the top of the South Island, Marlborough is holiday heaven where a temperate climate and vast, unspoilt wilderness lay grounds for indulgence and adventure.
Whether arriving by boat through the picturesque waters of Marlborough Sounds or flying in over rugged mountains and fertile plains with their endless rows of perfect vines – the diversity and quality of experience awaiting visitors, is always obvious.
Marlborough is famous for producing exceptional sauvignon blanc and is responsible for more than 75% of New Zealand’s wine production. Almost anything grows here and the rich local harvest from land and sea makes it a top destination for gourmets.
The region’s breath-taking beauty and sun-kissed natural environment is also a magnet for nature-lovers as well as hikers targeting New Zealand’s Great Walks and seafarers keen to explore Queen Charlotte Sound and the myriad of secluded waterways.
